General Study Space
All six floors of Wilson Library have chairs and tables for studying. Electrical outlets and wireless access are available throughout the building. Some spots are remote and may be relatively quiet, but there are no guarantees of quiet space unless you're in the Deep Quiet study room (301B).
Deep Quiet Study Room
The Deep Quiet room is 301B. There's no talking or typing on any kind of device allowed.
Group Study Rooms
There are several group study rooms on the second, third and fourth floor of the library. 201A, 201B, 301A and 409C are big multi-group rooms. Single-group rooms are 207, 209, 308, and 309. All are first come, first served.
All of the tables have outlets in them or near them & wireless reception is the best in the building. This is a fine location for meeting with group members, but it can get loud when it's busy.
On the basement level across from the coffee shop, this spot has a table and chairs and whiteboard for group study.
History Day Study Area
The History Day Study Area is on the basement level. When not in use by History Day Students, it's open to all. There are numerous tables for small group work as well as wireless and outlet access.
SMART Learning Commons
The SMART Learning Commons is a computer lab for UMN students, staff and faculty and is on the 1st floor of Wilson.
There are a limited number of study carrels available for faculty and graduate students.
Nearby Study Space
Just outside Wilson on the basement level is another study space available to students.
